High Achievers

At Buderim Mountain State School we offer a variety of extension programs.  Our intention is always to provide high achieving students with the opportunity to investigate and learn at a capacity best suited to their individual needs while connecting them with like-minded students.
Details of our extension programs are provided below. For more information, please contact Sandi Wallace through the administration office on (07) 5477 2777.
Aspire:
The Aspire excellence program aims to extend the capabilities of students recognised as learning above and beyond their current year curriculum.
Throughout the school year, there are three Aspire programs in the areas of Mathematics, English and Science, for students in Years 1-6. The program is supplementary to their lessons and extends on their current curriculum, occurring during school hours outside of their regular classroom lessons.
In addition, children who participate in the Aspire program participate in inter-school competitions such as the Readers Cup, the Voices on the Coast Creative Writing Competition, the Optiminds Creative Sustainability Challenge, Sunshine Coast Mathematics Tournament and the Sunshine Coast Robotics Competition.
Aspire Excellence:
For our highest achieving students, we provide an annual accelerated learning opportunity in the form of an intensive two-day coding and computer programming course. The course aims to extend elite students further and prepare them for their higher education and the modern workforce.
Solid Pathways:
Solid Pathways is an academic extension program for high achieving Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students in Years 4-6. Selected students participate in weekly online lessons aligned to the national curriculum with a focus on critical and creative thinking, as well as Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and culture.
